So I don't even know where to begin. It's funny how many photographers I meet who are or were also registered nurses. There has to be something there. Perhaps we are simply drawn to human connection in any form, because that is one parallel I find in both careers. Connection.
Amber and I are both nurses and both are photographers. We both feel passionate about family and community. We have so many similarities.
When she asked me to photograph them while they were on vacation here in Seattle I was absolutely honored.
This shoot is everything I want my art to say. It is raw, it is real, it is authentic, it is all the descriptive words I strive for. :)
Family photography is my life's work. I know there are many talented photographers in the world and when someone decides to take time out of their vacation for me to capture them I don't take that privilege lightly.
I hope you can feel what I felt when I took these images. I hope you can tell how powerful this mama is. I hope you can get a glimpse into just how tender and loving this papa is. I hope you feel the rowdy energy from her three boys yet the sweet love and adoration they have for each other. I hope you can tell that her baby girl is in a season in life where she loves her mama fiercely.
I just hope I did them justice.
